reporter earlier, i spoke to jane arraf, a reporter for al-jazeera english and the christian science monitor, about today's violence in baghdad and life in post-war iraq. welcome jane. what is known about who or what's behind today's car bombings and suicide attacks? >> well, the finger, judy, is always pointed at al qaeda and al qaeda-linked groups. because they view the attacks to have the fingerprints of that organization. it was extremely coordinated attack as you saw, more than 20 bombs, many car bombs and then for good measure they threw in some suicide bombers as well as sticky bombs on the bottoms of buses. most shi'a target and security targets. that sits in to what al qaeda is doing, try to destabilize the country by showing people its security forces can't protect them and trying to stir up the sectarian war that this country has recently emerged from. if. >> woodruff: how unusual is it to have so many attks on the same day? >> it was a bad day, that is certainly indisputable. i was at a university today talking to university students and they were holding a party because

science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> it's wednesday, march 20th, the first day of spring. well, the season may change, but the same winds are blowing in washington. the white house continues to insist on maximum pain from sequester cuts. we're seeing more cuts used for political reasons instead of cutting back on things we don't need. speaking of that, more nonsense from senator harry reid indirectly linking the blast that killed seven marines in nevada to the automatic defense cuts. listen. >> it's just not appropriate, mr. president, that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary. these men and women were training there at hawthorne, with the sequester it's going to cut the stuff back and i just, i just hope everyone understands sacrifices, sacrifices made by our military. they are significant. charles: and that's shameful. harrison ford of all people also sounding the alarm. the actor, oh, and pilot says, quote, accidents are going to happen when the f.a.a. closing air traffic controo towers. we'll play the sound from harrison ford and we also ha

in eighth grade science class, the last science class i had, the chart his been parabell on parabolic. did i ever claim to work at the jet propulsion lab? what it meant is that stocks had started to go up in pretty much a very steep slope. this is a parabola. so steep that the angle is getting a little dangerous if you're up here, right? here it's still pretty good and you get there and it's a nice place to plunge, right? and you have to wait so that time would pass and it wouldn't be such a steep parabola. she wasn't saying we were going to crash at all. she wasn't saying the companies weren't any good. she was simply staying it leaves room forreror particularly when you're in the state-up portion of the parabola. it's plenty of them as this list of parabolic stocks that i wrote down shows. this is incredible. i know. i hadn't really had this many stocks in parabola motion and they've risen the highest and the hardest and the ones taking the cake are the insurers and the banks. some of the transports. those insurers and bank stocks were strong for much of the day. i can see

professor of political science at the university of washington and author of the upcoming book "change they can't believe in, the tea party and reactionary politics in america." thanks so much, christopher, for joining us. it seems to me that when a lot of us who work on this show and have watched this program we have made a real effort to show the face of the tea party. all the placards up there, the hitler mustaches, the black face, if you will, superimposed on the face of barack obama. these obvious racial things that keep popping up in the visuals. what does your study tell you about the nature of the racial peace here of the tea party? >> well, thanks for having me, chris. my study suggests that there is a strain of racism in the tea party going all of the way back to when it began in 2010. there's definitely a racist strain but it goes beyond racism, homophobia as well, chris. >> let's talk about how they fit together. >> sure. >> is it a resumption of the old south, the dreamy nostalgia you get in the old movies like "gone with the wind"? when there are no gays, where blacks wer

breakthrough because all the science and all the statistics show that a gun in the home won't protect you against intruders which there aren't very many but does hugely is crease increase accident or suicide by a member in the family. as america is becoming safer in the face of crime, americans are choosing to arm themselves less. change is going to come not from the political system to the country but from the country to the political system. and as more and more americans make a decision, i don't want one for myself because i recognize how dangerous it is inside my home. you will see maybe more space for political change. start with things like background checks. start with things like keeping guns away from the most dangerous people, people with court orders for dples violence rather than trying to change these appalling but very rare terrible multiple murders. >> thanks very much to both of you. >>> still to come, a man who served 22 years in prison for the murder of a rabbi in new york is free tonight. his conviction has been tossed out. cnn was there the minute he walked out a f

only praising israeli progress, science, technology, the economy, but going with the president of israel and the prime minister to see a high-tech demonstration. one of which was a robot actually serving matzoh. so there were all sorts of demonstrations on medical advances. israel really has exploded with technology and science here and what the president was trying to say to the young people is, this is a model for the region. now make your democracy work by not being an occupying forceful. >> i thought that was one of the most effective parts of the president's speech. to say, take essentially, take all this negative energy and turn this into something positive. that israel is an economic hub. the palestinians are among the most educated populations in the worldful there is great potential here if these two opposing sides would actually work together. that's why he has been stressing economic development as a possibility. >> now a $40 billion a year mutual trade relationship that dennis ross helped nurture along. thank you, dennis, and i should say nbc middle east adviser in chi

-intellectual, ain't science and uncurious. despite successes of right wing broadcasters, like glenn beck and hannity, and despite the success of populist-ish governors like scott walker and bobby jindal and despite the effectiveness of the tea party in corralling conservatism in a grassroots cause, the movement has been successfully demonized by liberals as plutocratic, corporatist, anti-other and anti-poor. i believe both are unfair characterizations. if politics is perception, then conservatism is failing on both fronts. the good news is the job of revitalizing both the movement's hitch history of intellectualism and every man tradition has two very capable applicants. the bad news is, they will need to work together. rand paul and marco rubio are often pitted against one another competes for influence and authority, at times they seem to encourage this and may, in fact, end up competing in 2016. but their differences now and until then should be exploited in productive ways for the party that addressed those two deficiencies. paul's ayn randian highly intellectualized conservatism is info
